Ariana Grande’s attempt to get a Japanese tattoo in honour of her single, 7 Rings, went very wrong when it ended up reading ‘small BBQ grill’ instead.
The 25-year-old star was left red-faced when fans pointed out the epic error, and quickly endeavoured to change it.
However, her attempt at fixing the embarrassing inking also didn’t go to plan, as now the alteration translates to read ‘small BBQ grill finger’.
Thank U, Next singer Ariana made the blunder after consulting her Japanese pal, who told her to add the character for finger ("指") above and in-between the two characters in her original tattoo.
They told Ariana that adding the extra Japanese character would change its translation to mean seven finger circle, which means seven rings in Japanese.
However, the singer added the new symbol in the wrong place, placing it slightly underneath the character for seven rather than above it as advised.
This therefore means that Ariana’s tattoo now reads ‘fiery finger’ or ‘small BBQ grill finger’ instead of seven rings as she intended.
Despite fans flocking to highlight the error on social media, Ariana seemed a little happier with the results.
Sharing a picture of her new tatt, she wrote: "Slightly better. thanks to my tutor for helping me fix …
"Rip tiny charcoal grill. miss u man. i actually really liked u."
Ariana is likely to be frustrated when she discovers the error, after admitting the inking "hurt like f**k".
The tattoo came as she was celebrating this week after 7 Rings became her second number one single on the Billboard Hot 100 in three months.
